Not familiar with the film? Saekano The Movie: Finale is the an anime film adaptation of the eighth to final volumes of the Saekano light novel series. The previous novels in the series were adapted in an anime series of the same name, meaning the Saekano movie serves as the final for the anime series.

After blessing software announced their first work, Eriri and Utaha leave the group to join popular creator Akane Kosaka in developing a major game called Fields Chronicle.

Meanwhile, Tomoya and Megumi join hands with their new members and various other parties to produce their new game.
